#FloridaForty Day 5 Mt. Dora to Howey-in-the-Hills

What kind of name is Howey-in-the-Hills for a city?  That’s what we thought and it’s why we decided to visit it  🙂


This quaint little city is located about midway between Orlando and Ocala.  It literally took us about 4 minutes to drive through the entire city, even after driving to their post office.


After driving through the city, we headed a little north to get some coffee, run to Aldi, and grab some Panda Express.  In doing so, we passed through the town of The Villages.


Interesting fact about this city: you are not allowed to live here if you have children 18 years old or younger unless there was a hardship.  Only .3% of the 4,500 households in the city have children that age living with them (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Villages,_Florida).

The sun was out all day and if felt great.  The kids were finally able to ride their bikes (and skateboard).  So much so, that the only time they really stopped was for the pictures.
